Burnout syndrome is the continuous exposure to work-stress associated with poor working conditions, in which pleasure and work performance decrease. It is considered to be a multi-causal pathology, as it is related to excessive exposure to prolonged stress; it has identified aspects related to several stressors in the work environment that imply the commitment of the worker’s health triggering the disease, evaluated according to three components: depersonalization, exhaustion emotional, and professional achievement. For nurses, burnout reduces the ability to provide care. Every day, nurses face the dilemma of being human, empathetic, and sensitive, in a work environment of many responsibilities. The symptoms of burnout syndrome are characterized initially by the inability of the individual to cope with stressful work situations.
Both quantity and quality of nursing care may be negatively affected by stress and burnout. In a study by Motowidio, Packard and Manning (1986), hospital nurses who perceived high levels of occupational stress were rated lower in work performance by supervisors and colleagues. According to Chiriboga and Bailey (1989), stressors in the workplace may result in a burnout syndrome and burnout results in low productivity. Norbeck (1985) concluded that job stress may directly and indirectly affect the quality of nursing care provided to patients and patients' families. Gray-Toft and Anderson (1981) investigated causes and effects of job stress in hospital nurses and their findings supported the hypothesis that higher levels of stress experienced by registered nurses leads to significant reductions in job satisfaction and higher turnover rates in this group.
Other studies (Albrecht, 1982: Cronin-Stubbs & Velso Friedrich, 1981; Seuntjens, 1981) have also contended that job stress and burnout are major causes of job turnover and poor job performance among hospital nurses. Burnout is a dysfunctional response to stress. The initial step in finding creative solutions to the problem of burnout necessitates an assessment of the contribution of specific stressors to high levels of burnout. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Emergency Department are more stressful areas therefore nurses in those areas are prone to high level of burnout than others. Studies on burnout among nurses are limited and there is no research targeting specifically nurses working in ICU and Emergency Department and it was found high level of burnout among 61.7% of the participants under study. High workload and intention to leave were associated with burnout (P<0.05). Burnout was measured by high Emotional Exhaustion (EE) 29 (48.3%), high Depersonalization (DP) 15 (25%) and low Personal Accomplishment (PA) 30 (50%). Stress has been categorized as an antecedent or stimulus, as a consequence or response, and as an interaction. Nurses are particularly at risk of being affected by professional burnout because of the unique patient – caregiver relationship, which requires strong emotional involvement (Anchu V Raju, Aneeta Emmanual et.al ,2021)Burnout is clearly identified as a problem in the area of human services that need to be addressed. Burnout negatively affects the health and personal lives if the employees experiencing it. Nurses are more prone for burn out in their day-to-day professional life
